Protecting the places where whales and dolphins live is vital to ensuring their future. WDCS's goal is to help design and create 12 large 'safe havens' or Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) for whales and dolphins by 2012.

The fact that healthy oceans are essential for a healthy planet needs to be taken more seriously. Good start. Thanks for your post.

on sunday, October 3rd, ProWal and makes a demonstration in front of the main entry of Zoo Duisburg/Germany. Everybody is welcome.
We want that theyb close their dolphinarum.
We have gotten the hot message that Zoo Muensterr will close their dolphinarium in 2012.
This is a big success.

Germany has still three dolphinariums, Muenster, Duisburg and Nuernberg.
Nuernberg opens an outdoor part. They shall tafe it better for goldfishes. ;-)

Dolphins and whales are intelligent and magnificent creatures. It is so sad that their natural habitat is compromised. We must whatever it takes to protect them.

Safe havens for whales is an important concept. We really need to protect our oceans so that we don't have to resort to havens that resemble zoos for land animals that are facing extinction though. Whales need to have a very large migrating route and that means that they need a clean ocean to swim in.

Wonderful, heartening news. !!! Please keep the sanctuary a secret, or make sure it is policed/patrolled.!!!
Don't anyone tell Japan, Norway or Iceland Where to find it. !!!

Hasn't stopped the JAPANESE from Whaling/Killing in Australian Waters, That actually ARE a SANCTUARY.!!!
Well, Supposed to be, anyway !!!
